Kyrgios had previously criticised the organisers of the Balkan event and hit out at governing bodies for their plans to restart professional tennis during the pandemic.
Becker, the head of German men's tennis, took umbrage with Kyrgios' comment and stood up for his compatriot by firing back at Kyrgios yesterday.
The idea that Nick Kyrgios should keep his thoughts on fellow tennis players to himself when Becker himself was happy to tell all about his own volatile relationship with Novak Djokovic smacks of double standards a little, too.
Kyrgios replied, "Haha nah bro I'm good, don't act like you're my friend now because you got sat down".
It would seem that six-time Grand Slam victor and three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker wasn't particularly pleased with Kyrgios' interest in the story. "It's a global pandemic and if someone is as idiotic as Alex to do what he has done, I'll call him out for it. Simple".
On Monday, Kyrgios accused Zverev of being "selfish" after footage emerged of the German partying in Monte Carlo when he should have been isolating due to his involvement in the Adria Tour.
Kyrgios: "Rats? For holding someone accountable? Freakish way to believe of it champion, I'm just searching out for men and women", the 25-yr-previous Australian stated.
"WHEN my family members and people all about the entire world have respectfully carried out the correct factor. And you have a goose waving his arms around, imma say something". "Can hit a volley, obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed though".
Becker continued the argument, with the retort: "Your [sic] amusing guy.how is it down under?" Respect all the guidelines?'
The conversation continued in similar vein with neither Kyrgios nor Becker willing to back down from their points.
Becker is a well-known commentator and pundit for the BBC, regularly appearing on the channel's television coverage at Wimbledon.
After a host of stars examined beneficial for Covid-19 right after competing in the tournament - which captivated large crowds and in which social distancing wasn't in area - such as Djokovic, his wife Jelena, 3 other gamers, a few coaches and a person player's pregnant spouse, the opposition was canceled. "I really would like to see @NickKyrgios fulfill his potential and win a grandslam!" This comes days after the Australian said that while most call him irresponsible, the Adria Tour and those involved "take the cake".
He replied: "Why are you now talking about tennis?" It has nothing to do with Tennis?", he asked rhetorically: "How would it be if the guy you're defending, pull himself together and give us a statement? "Not another average management apology", he tweeted.
